Time Off for Medical Appointments

Please note that the University's Special Leave Policy replaces this content from 01/09/17.

The University recognises that staff may occasionally need to be absent from work to attend appointments with, for example, their GP and dentist or hospital.

Subject to confirmation of the need for regular treatment, the University will normally allow reasonable and appropriate time off for medical appointments and treatments, taking due account of the departmental needs.

If you have any query about time off to attend medical appointments, especially if they relate to pregnancy, including ante-natal appointments, and conditions that may relate to a disability, please contact the HR advice line on (0116) 252 2439, or email hradvice@le.ac.uk.
